Utility provider Con Edison has “real chutzpah” to request a rate hike that would increase their customers’ monthly bills, said state Senator Simcha Felder on Friday as he called on the state’s Public Service Commission to deny the utility’s request.

Con Ed has real chutzpah asking for rate hikes on top of rate hikes, which we know are the direct result of their own poor planning,” Felder said in a statement. “Con Ed should not get one more penny. They treat the pockets of 4 million New Yorkers like their personal piggy bank!”
